Sportsbook Review occasionally publishes updates on major cash prize contests or community events and references the SBR Store, betpoints, and other terms which may be unfamiliar to casual readers.
So, what are betpoints and what do they do? This article lists everything you need to know about the virtual loyalty points enjoyed by thousands of SBR users.
Betpoints are given to all SBR users. Players receive six points per day for logging into the SBR posting forum; members that have verified their accounts receive double at twelve points per day. These users are referred to as SBR Pros and have custom user titles to distinguish them from the pack, and have access to perks such as unrestricted poker ring games access, contest buy-ins, SBR event bashes and more.
Back to the point, points are given for logging into the posting forum once per day. If you log-in for five days in one week, your betpoint balance will be 30 provided you do nothing with your betpoints.
SBR Sportsbook, Casino, Racebook
If you're eager to practice making sports picks but aren't quite ready to make a deposit or use your bankroll, SBR has a virtual resort where you can wager with your points. This resort is often referred to as the SBR Book.
The SBR Book uses state of the art gaming software powered by Digital Gaming Solutions (DGS). This is the same software used by many online sportsbooks. Players can make everything from a straight bet to future, parlay or teaser, reverse wagers, and occasional special lines where SBR leans against the rest of the betting market.
The SBR Casino is also powered by DGS and has all traditional favorites such as blackjack, roulette, video poker, slots, craps, and many more games. The DGS casino has been certified for fairness.
The SBR Racebook allows horse racing bettors to perfect their wagering strategies and offers all normal and exotic bet types across a large range of tracks.
SBR Poker Room
SBR has a downloadable world class poker application. As of this time SBR Poker only runs on Windows, though players using Boot Camp on their Mac devices or Windows emulation software such as Parallels or Wine can enjoy SBR Poker. 24/7 ring games are offered with various betpoint buy-in levels. SBR also runs daily multi-table-tournaments (MTTs); currently, the $5,000 SBR Poker Championship is nearing completion.
SBR Contests allow players to win cash money and betpoint prizes by competing against fellow bettors in handicapping contests. Events such as the $20,000 NFL and NCAAF Beat The Prick contest, or the $10,000 College Football bowl contest are just some of the contests players have come to enjoy each year. There are also a wide range of community generated seasonal sports contests which are managed by SBR users.
The above ways of earning betpoints are just some of the most popular examples. For a full list and tutorial on betpoints, visit the SBR posting forum.
